Whoever said you can’t start life anew in your later years? The new trailer for indie hit I’ll See You in My Dreams proves that the answer is: only foolish people.
Blythe Danner, June Squibb, Martin Starr and Sam Elliott star in this coming-of-old-age comedy-drama about a widow who decides to start enjoying new adventures and looking at the world in a more colourful light after her beloved dog dies.
Danner’s first-time lead performance struck a particular chord with reviewers when the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2015 and you can expect lots of laughs and touching moments throughout.
The official synopsis reads: “In this vibrant, funny and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress discovers that life can begin anew at any age.
“With the support of three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman and Mary Kay Place), Carol (Blythe Danner) decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott) and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman).”
I’ll See You in My Dreams is released in UK cinemas on 12th February, on digital download on 22nd February and on Blu-ray and DVD on 29th February.
